Ali Fazal's Victoria & Abdul Releases In The UK, Gets A Thumbs Up”

The role of the queen is played by Dench and Abdul is essayed by Ali.

Historical drama Victoria and Abdul starring Dame Judi Dench and Bollywood heartthrob Ali Fazal debuted in 10 territories over the weekend, grossing $4.7m. "Victoria & Abdul" is expected to give a neck to neck competition to 'IT' at the worldwide box office. Based on a cache of letters and other writings unearthed in 2010 from Abdul Karim, a real-life personage whose existence was entirely unknown until the recent find, Victoria and Abdul tells a new story in the well-mined history of the British monarchy. The movie is good story-wise and also lovely to watch too! I mean, I can be a serious person, but I see humour in a great many things. So I guess I am happy. Karim quickly gained a prominent position in the Queen's household, similar to the intimacy she had shared with John Brown after the death of her beloved Albert. However, she has distinctive roles in both. "They were set in two different time periods of the late Queen's life, so there had to be vast differences", he said. "I thought the tall one was terribly handsome", says the Queen, and so Abdul is promoted from bearer of wobbling royal jellies (the symbolism isn't lost on me) to her personal footman and, eventually, her "munshi" or spiritual guide. She is one of the most attractive women I have ever laid my eyes on. "I learnt a lot from her". The movie has been directed by Stephen Frears and has been distributed by Focus Features.
